Celebrate Halloween with Mickey and friends
23 September 2009
Nobody does Halloween quite like the Americans, so what better place to head on holidays for some terrific thrills this All Hallows’ Eve than Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando?
Not to be missed is Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, which will be held on various nights from 7pm at Magic Kingdom in the run-up to Halloween and beyond*. The theme park will be transformed into a frightfully fun ‘Haunted Hollow’, where children of all ages will be encouraged to don their favourite Halloween costume and go trick or treating around the theme park, collecting plenty of goodies on the way.
There’s also a spook-tacular Mickey’s Boo-Yo-You parade with all of the Disney characters dressed for the occasion, and an amazing Happy HalloWishes fireworks display to bring the evening to a spirited conclusion.
